Cuebitze / Bio

My idea is to experiment creatively using imagery as lyrics to relate my view of what runs through my head, mind and heart. Fusion is the game; good music is the target. Reformation and enlightenment is my utmost goal to set a captive soul free through song of love, life and light.


Cuebitze is an emerging enigma in the genre of R&B/Soul/Alternative music. A multi-talented singer/songwriter with a sensual irresistible voice and style, developed through some years of consistency and adept experience due to his passionate love for music.
Born and raised in the slummy parts of Lagos- Nigeria, his deep love for the colors, photography, poetry and most importantly music, lead him into a sole soul search for that which he is truly passionate about.
He is an eclectic music lover with a knack for good music ranging from vocal jazz, easy listening, rhythm and blues, soul to mention but a few. His rare and unique intuit for music has also lead him into a listening exploration of music from Asian (Arabian, Indian and Chinese) and South America and the West Indies

Indirectly and unknowingly to him, his early childhood years that has to do with music was highly influenced by his parents. His father who is an ardent lover and collector of good music with his collections ranging from classical to salsa, and mother who is a local or traditional group dancer/singer, whom Cuebitze followed to her dance rehearsal times without number.
Although today he has emerged with a unique song/vocal style, his major influences were Luther Vandross, Aaron Neville, Ella Fitzgerald and George Michael. A rare combination which defines why his style and rendition still puzzles so many people today.
Having studied Fine and Applied Arts in two acknowledged institutes of higher learning in Nigeria, Cuebitze because of his deep and strong passion for music, was driven into working with a music production studio where he was involved in a fair amount of vocal and songwriting sessions, working with various artistes and producers.

His first real and major encounter with music besides daddy’s turntable harmonies, bathroom melodies and midnight dreams lullabies, was his been called to join an a cappella group in his school called Divine Roses. This group without doubt again had another impact on Cuebitze, exposing him to another music world entirely where everything is simply made with the vocals, thereby helping him to define his vocal style and also his listening accuracy. After school he joined yet another group of singers, A2J and was later called to join a second a cappella group called PSALMIST after the former split. He has also been actively involved in developing choirs and music groups which himself have headed some and this with time has helped improve and refine his musical prowess.
Presently a practicing graphic designer, music producer/songwriter and author, he prepares gracefully and steadfastly to change lives for better using whatever he has as a tool but most especially, music.
Today this young, passionate and soulful personality- Cuebitze, is about to set the world on its feet not just with music but with his lyrics bearing messages of hope, love, peace, and comfort through his songs.
